Above left and right, Black Earth elementary students decorated ribbons and presented them to Dane County Sheriff's Deputy Kathy Wessel last Wednesday in recognition of World Cancer Day. A total of six schools in both Dane and Green County participated this year to make ribbons. Their personal touch and uplifting messages deeply touch the hearts of those receiving them, and especially those struggling to find hope and strength. The ribbons will be put on display here at the Sheriff's Office as well as other locations where cancer survivors and those fighting cancer can see them. Joan Kamholz, founder and president of Justice For a Cure, was on hand for the presentation, eagerly accepting high-fives from the students and explaining how the ribbons will be used. Justice For a Cure works with law enforcement to provide support for those in its ranks with cancer, as well as raising awareness in the community, educating, and supporting research.
